You can use the advance search options in the windows search function to search by modified date

or you may wish to create a script to do this. Check out this technet link:

What are you using for backup software? Most of the major products have and "archive" function that will move old files off the disk to tape, then delete them from disk. This helps, because you know the minute you delete an old file, someone is going to come to you and say they need it.
